I was perusing the isles of Target last week when I had an “aha” moment about a closet organization project. I had this crazy idea that I could repurpose a curtain rod and create vertical shoe storage.
Here we are four months living in our rustic beach cottage and I STILL haven’t organized our master closet.
I created a DIY family charging station in our kitchen which works beautifully.
I even decided to organize our car with a few dollar tree supplies. The problem with keeping shoes tucked away in a box is that if I can’t see them, I won’t wear them (I’m sure the same issue goes for my husband too).

You know me and you know I want my closet to look semi decent, so I decided to spray paint both the curtain rods and the hold backs the same color. I used an oil rubbed bronze spray paint from Rust-Oleum.
Next I hung the curtain hold back and added all my belts and scarves. I removed the finial so I could slide the belt ends down the rod.
